14 Reasons For
Higher Megapixels
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 is a 16MP digital camera. That's 3.9MP higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 (12.1MP).

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

Read more Read less | Edit
Higher Maximum ISO Sensitivity
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 is a 25,600 maximum ISO speed digital camera. That's 19,200 higher than the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 (6,400).

ISO sensitivity denotes the sensitivity of your camera to available light. Modifying the sensitivity causes the camera to gather more or less light when forming an image. Higher sensitivity gathers more light, which means can lead to a sharper image in low-light conditions. However it may also lead to increased 'noise', meaning the ISO level must be carefully modified to get the best shot.

A higher maximum ISO sensitivity will allow you to take photos in lower light levels without using flash.

Read more Read less | Edit
280g Lighter
The Panasonic Lumix DMC-G7 has a weight of 360g, however the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is a 640g digital camera (280g heavier).

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.
